If you live around Charlotte then you may have picked up a copy of a local magazine called Elevate Lifestyle. Elevate Lifestyle is a monthly magazine that provides insight on cultural, entertainment, dining, and nightlife in Charlotte. It also highlights particular businesses in the Charlotte community that may appeal to its audience.
In the March 2009 issue of Elevate Lifestyle, I was fortunate enough to have a few of my images included in an article about engagement sessions. My friend and fellow photographer Laura Vossberg is the cultural editor at Elevate Lifestyle and wrote a story about how engagement sessions have changed in recent years. In her article, Laura highlighted the experience that she and her fiance Brian had on their engagement shoot, as well as the different locations that we choose for the shoot. I was Laura and Brian’s photographer on their engagement shoot and she include a handful of images from their session in her article (look for them in this blog). Check out the March 2009 issue to read the article and see the images. You can find it here.
As I mentioned in a previous post, engagement sessions are a great opportunity for you as a client to get to know your wedding photographer. Most couples do not have e-sessions, but really should consider them. They are fun, laid-back, easy going, and provide you the opportunity for some really compelling lifestyle images that you will love. Best of all, you get the chance to work with your photographer ahead of your wedding day and become better acquainted with the camera. This will make your wedding day images that much better and help your photographer get to know and understand your personality.
